When McDonald’s opened its first UK location in 1974, Elizabeth II was 22 years into her reign. The first restaurant was located in the London suburb of Woolwich.
Currently, McDonald’s has more than 1,450 restaurants in the UK and Ireland.; One of these restaurants would be the Isabel II restaurant, which would be more elegant than most and is open to the public.
Best Life notes that, according to reports, the queen owned a McDonald’s at Banbury Gateway Shopping Park in Oxfordshire.
“The McDonald’s is located on land that is part of the Crown Estate, owned by the Sovereign. So technically the Queen owned a McDonald’s.” Although there is no record of the queen eating at the restaurant.
In addition to the special McDonald’s branch, Starbucks, Marks & Spencer, Next and Primark are located on the same land.
The Queen’s McDonald’s has leather sofas, Eames chairs and tableware. This would not be the first McDonald’s on land owned by the reigning monarch. According to My London, the queen used to own a branch at Bath Road Retail Park in Slough, but she sold the land for £177m in 2016.
